Vegan Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: vegan baking does not have to be daunting and vegan baked goods do not need to taste “different.” My goal in creating this recipe was to come up with a basic, vegan muffin recipe that can easily be customized into whatever your favorite muffin type is. Take away the blueberries and lemon and you have a plain vegan muffin, ready for whatever you want to add in. So far, I’ve tried a few different combinations, including: grated carrots and walnuts, raspberries, and lemon poppyseed. Feel free to experiment and share your favorites!

  3. [...] enjoy one with a big cup of coffee (or tea, or whatever warm beverage you prefer). Like these Vegan Lemon Blueberry Muffins I tried to create a simple vegan scone base that you can use to create any scone you’d like. [...]
